We are going to be doing a whole school topic if you wish to join in with it over the Easter holidays; it will be a grid that gives ideas of fun activities to do with your family or on your own. We hope you have lots and lots of fun, please continue to post pictures and videos on Tapestry as we love to see them!

Mrs Derbyshire’s Diary 02.04.20

Today started with breakfast in the kitchen where we had toast and out little boy asked for chocolate spread on his, what a treat! Next we played doctors with his doctor’s kit, he loves to be the doctor whilst Mummy and Daddy lie down and pretend to be patients. We played cars lots and we got the car mat out to make it more exciting. The car mat has a cave on which he loves to pretend is the cave from the Bear Hunt story and we have to run away! We went for our daily walk as a family and our little boy took his motorised bike today, it was much slower than we expected it to be so the walk took us a very long time. We always try and spot the ducks on our walk as there is a little pond on our estate. This afternoon we had a Zoom staff meeting, it was lovely to see all of the other teachers. Finally our day ended with us playing MonkeyBall on the Playstation and then we played Friends Scene It, we also went outside to clap for the keyworkers and heard lots of fireworks too.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CILLIAN!!!

It was great to see so many of you on the Zoom chat yesterday; we miss you all so much!!

Mrs Derbyshire’s Diary 01.04.20

Today we started the day all having breakfast together in the kitchen. Next we did the Dough Disco in our living room which our little boy absolutely loved! Then I did some work until it was time for our Zoom chat which myself, Mrs Whitehall and Mrs Williams all loved, thank you!! Next we went for a walk down the path near to us which was fun, we found lots of rocks and threw them into the stream. After lunch we watched The Bake Off and worked whilst our little boy had a 2 hour nap! When he woke up it was outdoor playtime with lots of phone calls and Facetimes from different Grandparents. In the evening we settled on the sofa with some treats and watched The Lion King.

We had lunch together in the kitchen and looked at our paintings and drawings that we have done over the past week. In the afternoon we went for another walk and our little boy rode his motorbike.

Mrs Derbyshire’s Diary 30.03.20

Today I woke up with a bad headache so my husband looked after our little boy whilst I stayed in bed for an extra hour. When I got up I felt much better and our day began with watching The Snail and The Whale again whilst we ate breakfast. We then played inside; we had a teddy bears picnic, played with the cars and followed a maze around the downstairs. We had lunch and then had a relax for an hour on the sofa. In the afternoon we went on a stick man hunt and found lots of sticks which we painted with when we got back. We made some cookies later on which were very delicious. After our little boy had gone to bed I and my husband set up a family quiz for our families through Zoom, it was very difficult but they all tried their hardest and no-one cheated!

Mrs Derbyshire’s Diary 27.03.20

What another brilliant day! On a Friday my little boy usually goes to a Toddler Class with his Nannar so this morning we joined in live through Zoom which was lots of fun and exciting for me as I am usually at work so I was able to join in today.

We found some bubble activities in our garage which I had forgotten about so we spent a very long time making bubbles everywhere, it was so much fun and we will definitely be doing more of it over the weekend.

We had our lunch outside at our new garden table which we all very much enjoyed. Our little boy had a huge 2 hour nap this afternoon so I got started on some assessment work in the sunshine which was lovely.

After he woke up we went on a walk around our estate, we have found two ducks living in the pond so we stopped and waved at them.

We are having a treat night tonight with pizza and we are going to watch a film.

Mrs Derbyshire’s Diary 26.03.20

This morning started with a picnic breakfast in our Living Room whilst watching The Highway Rat on BBC iPlayer. After breakfast we all got dressed and had a play inside with lots and lots of teddy bears and soft toys. We decided to have a little teddy tea party so we filled toy tea cups with water and my little boy shared them around (it did get a little spilt so I took this activity outside for us to play later in the day). Next we did some Peppa Pig magic colouring which I think is a fantastic invention! Before lunch we ventured into the garden and played with lots of toys, we especially enjoyed the water play and we got very wet from ‘rescuing cars trapped in the water’. We went on a family walk in the afternoon around our estate and just before dinner we did The Hungry Caterpillar cosmic kids yoga. We have also put our new garden furniture together today, I will try and get a photo and upload it tomorrow.

I have been keeping myself occupied in the evenings by doing some painting with numbers on the iPad. I’ve chosen some very difficult ones to do but it has been fun. Maybe you could see if there are any painting by numbers apps for children to do.

Mrs Derbyshire’s Diary 25.03.20
Yesterday I spent the day working on finding new activities for you all for next week, updating the website and Tapestry and I also spent a lot of my day following my little boy around with the potty, I never knew potty training was going to be so hard! We spent lots of time in the garden again and we saw people coming past playing the Bear Hunt game and spot the Rainbow (I have put pictures of our bear and rainbow below). We spent time making cherry scones with some ingredients we had in the house and we also played trains (a lot). Today we watched ‘Room on the Broom’ on BBC iPlayer, my little boy thought the Witch was the frogs Mummy! Just before our dinner time we went on a family walk around our estate trying to spot more bears. We finished our day playing hide and seek with Nanna! We facetimed Nanna on the phone and then we hid the phone from my little boy, he had to come and find Nanna who was shouting ‘I’m here’ to help him. We loved it! Why not have a go facetiming someone and trying this too.

Wednesday

Wow! So many of you uploaded photos, videos and lots of brilliant comments yesterday. It was amazing to see all of the exciting things you have been doing as well as doing your learning, well done everyone I am super proud!

 

I loved seeing your Spider Sandwiches with the ingredients you would use, they sound revolting! Haha. Don’t forget when you are doing some writing have a go at writing it yourself rather than copying what an adult has written. Most of you can write phonetically so for example if you were going to write ‘ I have been to the park’ you might see your child  write ‘I hav bin to the park’ or ‘I like ice cream’ as ‘ I lIk Is Creem’ or ‘Spider Sandwiches’ as ‘spIda sanwijis’. Writing phonetically is exactly what they should be doing at this age so don’t think they are getting it wrong J.

 

The weather is supposed to be good for the rest of the week so I hope we can see more photos and videos of you doing lots outside.

 

Mrs Derbyshire’s Diary 24.03.20

Yesterday I spent the day in the garden again with my little boy. We had bubbles out, ride ons and I used a big cardboard box to make him a house and I also turned a tuff spot into a road for him. We went on a 10 minute Bear Hunt (people are putting bears in windows so you can go on your own Bear Hunts) around our estate and we also spotted Rainbows in peoples windows. We watched the ‘Snail and the Whale’ on BBC iPlayer which my little boy loved and he tried to copy the whale flipping his tail which was very funny. We finished our day with a ‘Cosmic Kids’ yoga video followed by ‘Shake your Sillies out’ on Youtube. (see some pictures below).

Hope you are all ok and Day 1 went well!

Yesterday I spent most of the day outside in our new garden attempting to potty train my little boy whilst responding to messages and thinking up new and exciting activities for you all for next week.

It was so lovely to see so many of you posting things on Tapestry for us to see and I’m so glad lots of you were able to go into your gardens or for short walks.
